I’m LJ, a UK Respiratory doctor & medical education enthusiast. I’m here to share my experience of creating respnetlondon.com #RespEd #RespisBest #MedEd #FOAMed #PressEdConf19 /1
UK medical doctors in training must navigate a complex landscape of changing accreditation requirements. Vital information is often dispersed across multiple emails & websites e.g. JRCPTB & PGMDE #RespEd #MedEd #PressEdConf19 /2
I built Respnet as a practical way to centralise information, but also to inspire #trainees & create a sense of belonging. Belonging, connection & community are important for motivation, fulfilment & #wellness, & help prevent #burnout. #RespEd #MedEd #PressEdConf19 /3

1. Hi, everyone! I’m Kevin Gannon--history prof and director of the teaching and learning ctr. at Grand View Univ. in Iowa, US. In my keynote (tweetnote?), I’d like to talk about giving students the opportunity to “own their learning” via WordPress blogging. #PressEdConf19
2. About 5-6 years ago, I started to incorporate blogging and website design/construction into all of my courses. I wanted students to create knowledge and their own spaces in which to present it; to write in a variety of styles and for different audiences… #PressEdConf19
3...and to learn how to navigate/interact in digital spaces and work with digital tools. Particularly in my survey courses, where most students are not HIST majors, this larger skill set seemed like it would translate across a variety of interests/majors #PressEdConf19

1. Hi #PressEdConf19 my name is Mark Smithers and I am a Senior Coordinator of Digital Learning Design at RMIT University. For the last 3 years I have worked on developing and implementing ideas of digital habitats for learners using WordPress as a platform for collaboration.
2. The work that I’m involved in is aimed at the Program level, discipline level or School (department) level. The VLE/LMS normally involves itself at the Course level. There is often nothing at the higher levels. This is a gap in the learner exp that needs filling #PressEdConf19
3. By creating WP digital spaces at high level we can address a number of issues. A. we can create a ongoing community of practice that students belong to. Wenger, White and Smith describe this as a digital habitat. #PressEdConf19
